Never Enough Wool
We are not sure just where February went … it whizzed by so quickly that neither Barb or Carol remembered to write a newsletter. Ooops!
Now that it is March, however, our thoughts are turning to spring and the delicious spring/summer yarns that we have ordered. In fact, the first has arrived! Tropicalia from Diamond Luxury. This is a cotton/viscose blend that comes in deep, vivid colours. It is a double-knitting weight, so perfect for the transition months! Carol has found a lovely vest pattern.
Returning to the shelves will be Jaipur from Katia as well as Schachenmayr Tahiti. In fact, Barb is making her Hitofude with a lovely sunset-coloured Tahiti right now.
Arriving in the near future is King Cole Cotton Soft Crush, a delightful self-striping summer yarn.Still thinking about those warm winter woolies? We have just received the newest colours of Estelle Chunky. There are a dozen beautiful heathered colours, and we have them! This yarn is an acrylic/wool blend, totally machine washable, and delightful in the hand. Check it out!
Don’t forget the Knitter’s Frolic which happens on April 29th at the Japanese Cultural Centre at Wyndford Drive and the Don Valley Parkway. Of course, this means that it will be a “SAY HI TO DOUG DAY” at the shop, as both Barb and Carol will be out performing market research.
In addition to her Hitofude and Crazed Scandinavian, Barb continues working on her Sophie`s Universe. Carol is finishing up her Shawinigan scarf and working on her Crazed Scandinavian, and a lovely vest with the Tropicalia yarn.
We attempt to keep our class fees at the lowest
possible rates. In
order to do so, we
ask that our students purchase their supplies here at the shop. In addition, we offer
class discounts to our
note that if you are
not able to finish your project in the allotted time, you are welcome
continue attending the lesson times until you are finished.
You must register for your class before class time. Class times are generally Tuesday afternoon from 1-3:00 pm and Tuesday evening 7-9:00 pm. Other times may be arranged to suit, but we will strive to hold classes primarily on Tuesdays. Drop-in knitters are always welcome, space allowing.
March – Socks! These can be worked either top-down, or toes-up, and using Barb`s favourite double-point needles or Carol`s preference of magic loop. Classes start March 7 and continue through the month. Cost: $25 plus materials.
April – Crochet – Summer Cardigan – We have found a lovely little crochet cardigan that is perfect for summer. It can be worked in your choice of Mandarin Petit, Mississippi 3, or any 4-ply sock weight. If you already know how to crochet but want to learn how to read a pattern – this is the one for you! Class starts April 7.
Knit-A-Long – Crazed Scandinavian Cowl – check out this beauty on Ravelry! It is a jaw-dropping two colour cowl, worked with light-weight wool, and is stunning. The cowl is worked as a tube so that all your colourwork is done on the knit side (what an advantage!), and then the ends joined seamlessly.
Sit ‘n Stitch: Every Wednesday afternoon, from 1 until 3. Bring your latest project and join us for some stitching, questions answered, tea, and lots of laughter. Everyone is welcome!
Saturday Stitching: Every Saturday, from 2 until 4. What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon than with friends both new and old, some handwork, and some tea?
Knitting Night: Every Thursday, from 7 until 9. Although it’s called Knitting Night, crocheters are encouraged and welcomed. There is plenty of friendship, tea, and yummy goodies for all.
